Landscaping for Biodiversity

April 20, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for a class that will teach you simple things that you can do to make your backyard a haven for biodiversity. In this class you will learn how to provide resources, food and habitat to all sorts of wildlife. According to experts, we are in the middle of the 6th Extinction, losing species at 100-1000x the normal background rate. Among species in decline are the insects on which so much of our life processes depend, as well as the birds that feed on them. Learn how to design your landscape to support them! This lecture is sponsored by Wild Ones Prairie Edge, a non-profit organization that promotes the use and benefits of native plants in landscapes.

This is a free class but RSVPs are strongly encouraged. Email to reserve your space!

Instructor Information: Lori Tritz is a Master Naturalist, Master Water Steward, and Board Member of the Wild Ones Prairie Edge Chapter. Lori is also the Chair of the Eden Prairie Conservation Commission and Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek Watershed District Citizens Advisory Commission.
